NCAA Had ‘Meeting’ With Prized Oregon Recruit?

Interesting Tweet late Wednesday from one of the crown jewels of Oregon’s 2011 recruiting class, De’Anthony Thomas:

JUST GOT. OUT OF A MEETING WIT THE NCAA PEOPLE MAN IT FELT LIKE I WAS TALKING TO THE POLICE

De'Anthony Thomas Tweet

Thomas’ decision to attend Oregon was a controversial one, marked by a last-second flip from USC to Eugene.

On the day he tabbed the Ducks, Thomas said:

A lot of people say I’m going to Oregon because of Nike. I’m not going for Nike. I’m going to be a baller.”

There was no subsequent explanation for why Thomas would reference Nike, other than the fact that Nike Founder Phil Knight is the pre-eminent Oregon football booster.
